Israel continues to threaten Flotilla despite Irish TDs promise to deliver letter to Shalit
international | rights, freedoms and repression | news report Friday May 28, 2010 12:07 by Freda H - IPSC
Despite calls from the UN, Israel continues its plot to intercept the Freedom Flotilla to Gaza.
Israel's foreign ministry said it had given warnings to the ambassadors of Ireland, Cyprus, Greece, Sweden and Turkey - from where the ships set sail - that it had "issued warrants that prohibit the entrance of the vessels to Gaza".
This statement comes in the midst of Israeli preparations for a massive outdoor detention centre in the Israeli port of Ashdod and ongoing diplomatic attempts by the Israeli Foreign Ministry to prevent the Freedom Flotilla from reaching Gaza. Israel has vowed to divert the ships to Ashdod, by force if necessary, where all Israeli participants will be arrested, Palestinians will be questioned by Israeli secret police and internationals will be deported or held in a detention centre if they refuse deportation.
